3 (5 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut on diagonal into thin strips
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. canola oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 oz.) package broccoli coleslaw (Why did I have such a hard time finding these in the grocery stores?)
1 pepper, diced (optional)
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
4 oz. whole-wheat spaghetti, broken in thirds and cooked according to package directions
2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sherry vinegar (or another)
2 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. pine nuts, toasted (I used almonds- have you seen the price per pound on the pine nuts lately?)
1) Combine chicken and cornstarch in large zip-close plastic bag. Squeeze out air and seal bag. Shake until chicken is coated evenly.
2) Heat wok or large deep nonstick skillet over high heat until a drop of water sizzles in pan. Add 1 tsp. of oil and swirl to coat pan. Add chicken and stir-fry until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds; transfer to plate.
3) Remove pan from heat; wipe clean with wet paper towel to remove any cornstarch. Set pan over high heat and add remaining 1 tsp. of oil. Add broccoli slaw (and optional pepper) and stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add scallions and pepper flakes; stir fry 2 minutes.
4) Return chicken to pot along with spaghetti; stir fry until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, vinegar and sugar; stir-fry until mixed well, about 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with pine nuts.
